Arsene Wenger's contract at Arsenal ends in 2011 and he has admitted it will be a check point in his career.
From Wenger's perspective it could be the right time to take on a national job, such as Germany or obviously France.
It will leave a huge void the day Arsene Wenger decides to leave Arsenal and a strong character would be needed to fill the gap. Jose Mourinho is a strong character but would Gooners take to him?
Love him or hate him, it can't be denied that he is a good manager but his style of play isn't the type that would appease the Arsenal faithful.
Mourinho has stated that he wants to return to England when he ends his time at Inter Milan. I think he would relish the opportunity to take on a job like Arsenal. But could he succeed without the huge funds he had at Chelsea?
I've said in the past that I'd like someone to continue the Wenger way of football, someone like Slaven Bilic appeals to me but he hasn't been tested in the day to day running of a football club.
Whenever Le Boss leaves it will be a very sad day for Arsenal football club but I'm sure he will have some say in who succeeds him.
Would any Gooners accept Mourinho as the next Arsenal manager?
Keep it Goonerish....................
